High Protein Lunch Recipe For Weight Loss – Horse gram/Kulith Paratha For Fat Loss | Skinny Recipes

October 29, 2019

Hey Guys! I am Nisa Homey and welcome back to my channel. Today, I am showing a high protein, high fibre
paratha recipe for weight loss. This paratha is high protein and keeps you
feeling fuller for a longer time and thus it helps in weight loss and weight management. The filling in this paratha is not only protein
rich, but it also has many benefits. Hence ideal to include in your diet especially
those with lifestyle health issues. Let me also show you how well the filling
has evenly spread in the paratha. This paratha is an ideal lunch box meal for
those on a weight loss diet. So, without wasting much time lets get started
with the recipe. I am using half cup horse gram in this recipe. Horse gram is also known as kulith. It is one of the richest source of protein
for vegetarians. It has fat burning capacity, helps to lower
cholesterol, reduces blood sugar levels, prevents kidney stones, protect against gout and uric
acid and the best thing is it is much cheaper than other pulses and dals. Also, another good thing is apart from protein
horse gram is a rich source of minerals such as calcium, iron, and zinc. So, those with iron deficiency anemia and
calcium deficiency can include this inexpensive dal in their diet and make sure you use desi
ghee to help the nutrients absorb faster into your body when you are using this dal. Kulith is also very filling hence it will
keep you feeling fuller for a longer time and thus it prevents you from over eating
or snacking after a meal and thus it helps in weight loss. So, I am soaking half cup of horse gram; horse
gram takes longer time to cook so, soaking it overnight or atleast 3-4 for hours is ideal. Once the dal is soaked wash and rinse it and
then add it into the pressure cooker. Add in about 3/4 cup water, pink himalayan
salt as needed and pressure cook for about 20 mins on low flame. So, what I do is after the first whistle reduce
the flame to the lowest and cook it for 20 mins. While the dal is cooking lets make the dough
for the paratha. I am using 1 cup of khapli wheat flour, however,
you can use ordinary whole wheat flour instead. Khapli wheat is also known as Emmer wheat,
it is an ancient variety of wheat grain which has a very weak gluten molecule and hence
its easily digestable. This low gluten wheat is also rich in fibre
and has other health benefits. Pls do check my video on Khapli Roti to understand
more. Links will be updated below this video. Those with thyroid, PCOS, and diabetes can
try to include khapli wheat in their diet and see how their body responds to it. Especially the bloating issues. However, those with celiac disease should
avoid all types of wheat products. Now, I am just spicing the dough with half
tsp pink himalayan salt, half tsp ajwain which i am roughly crushing with my fingers and
adding in so that the flavours are released, half tsp turmeric powder, 1/2 tsp kashmiri
chilli powder, 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper powder to help the turmeric absorb
faster into your body. Now, give this a mix and then add in 1/2 cup
water little by little and make it into a soft dough. Add in 1/2 tsp desi ghee and mix well and
then keep it aside. After about 20 mins and once the pressure
has depressurised by itself, open the cooker and you can see that the dal is nicely cooked. Incase you have some remaining water in the
pressure cooker you may use it to knead the dough. Transfer the dal into a plate and mash it
lightly. into that i am adding in half tsp turmeric
powder, half tsp Kashmiri chilli powder, 2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves, 2 tbsp chopped
curry leaves for that extra iron and folate, 1/4 inch chopped ginger, 1 tsp roasted jeera
powder, 1 tsp amchur powder, 1/4 tsp hing also known as kayam in malayalam, half tsp
freshly ground black pepper powder, also note that the ingredients are listed below this
video in the description box below. Now, mix all this really well and divide into
equal portions and keep aside. The best part of this filling is that you
can make ahead this filling and store it in the refrigerator and the next day or when
you are planning to make the paratha. You just have to knead the dough and use the
filling in the paratha. This filling also will keep good in the fridge
for up to 2-3 days Before making the parathas, lightly knead the dough a couple of times on the work surface and then take a small lemon sized dough sprinkle in some khapli wheat flour and lightly roll it out when rolling make sure that the sides are thinner and the center is thick now, place one portion of the dal mix and cover and seal the dough sprinkle some khapli wheat and with your hands roll into small circles like I am showing in the video and then with a rolling pin flatten it out and place it on the hot tawa and let it cook on low flame for about a minute and then turn it over note that I am using a cast iron tawa which has more heat retention hence, I am cooking on low flame also, note that cooking in a cast iron helps in better iron absorption so if you have iron deficiency anemia try to make sure that you cook at least one of your meal in a cast iron cookware now, drizzle in half tsp desi ghee remember that desi ghee helps to bring down the glycemic index of wheat and also helps to assimilate vitamins and minerals faster into your body especially fat soluble vitamins like Vitamin A, K, E, & D now flip it over and again drizzle in half tsp desi ghee I have already shared a couple of videos on how desi ghee helps to burn fat do check it out for more information and why you should be using desi ghee in your diet once both sides are cooked well, remove from the tawa and repeat the same with the rest of the dough I am serving the high protein paratha with some shallots and sliced carrots I am also adding in a pinch of pink Himalayan salt and a splash of homemade coconut vinegar for some gut friendly healthy bacteria or you can use apple cider vinegar but make sure you use the apple cider vinegar which has the mother now, give it a mix And I am also servig some homemade pickle Did you know that pickles made in the traditional way is a good source of gut friendly probiotics and my healthy high protien nutrient dense meal is ready to serve one paratha is super filling and keeps you feeling fuller for a longer time so guys, do try this healthy high protein and nutrient dense paratha and let me know how it turned out dont forget to like comment, and share this video with family and friends thank you for watching, and until next time! take care!
